“As a daily paper, the Wairarapa Times-Age celebrates the successes and role models in Wairarapa, providing our readership with a paper of well-being and community vibrancy, as well as tackling the issues of public concern and matters of public record. 

It is this combination that has resulted in our paper performing resiliently in ABC circulation results over the last three years. In 2016, the newspaper is running with more subscribers than the previous year – a feat we are incredibly proud of. 

The Wairarapa Times-Age has a fresh, lively look and a primary focus on local and regional news, business and sport. It also offers solid coverage of national and international developments. 

The Wairarapa Times-Age is distributed to the Wairarapa area and surrounds Monday to Saturday mornings. 

The Wairarapa Times-Age is supported by its community stable mate publication, Wairarapa Midweek. This free community newspaper is distributed to 20,000+ households throughout the Wairarapa and also includes a glossy real estate magazine – the only dedicated local real estate product available in the region.

"We are proud of our community and what it achieves. We find the stories that matter to the readers."
